Hello

Just looking for some help in identifying the class of these shortcross pennies if anyone is knowledgeable about these coins?

Also what is the best indicator of class on these coins that I should look out for?

Thankyou

I'm not an expert but this website will help: https://www.rodblunt.com/short-cross-pennies-2

I would guess they are John, class 5 or 6, because of the hair curls (2 on each side), 5-pellet crown, good chin and neat beard with central pellet. Both seem to be from the London mint.

The 2 curls and cross pattée initial mark put them class 5b, 5c, 6a, 6b or 6c1.

The X in Rex seems to rule out 6a1 and 5c, and the eyes rule out 6c. The beards look neat with vertical whiskers, so not 6b. That leaves 5b1-3 and 6a2.

The one on the left has a normal S and round-topped R, so could be class 5b2.

The one on the right is missing useful bits of the legend, but the large pellets on the crown suggest 5b2 as well.

Thanks John : )

That website looks great, il have to have a good read through it and hopefully get better at identifying classes of shortcross pennies!

Agree with what you say from looking at the website but still not 100% confident I can pin them down to an exact class yet
